Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that area with an A-. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with too many deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this nursing home still received a relatively positive inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second best category is long-term care, but it still received a grade of just D in that category. This turns out to be a well below average grade. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities provide. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. We were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated 31.654678 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is quite a bit less than the national average. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. We weighed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses spent with residents, in computing our grade in this category. This facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we looked at was short-term care. It received a lowly F in this category, which is a poor score. With our short-term care score, we attempt to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. With a grade of this caliber in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this place was well below average in many staffing metrics we focus on. It offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
